i'd want to see that clock they used with wellwood, b/c he looked pretty average to me. kronwall looked much faster, and his time was slower
First .. being selected to participate makes a statement ..
Second big Jay Bouwmeester is a great skater and Welly's time 2/10 of a second around an arena .. Can the Human eye even detect 2/10ths of a second ??? Thats like blinking once or twice ..
As you said Salmelainen is a known speedster ... 14.762 verses 14.776 .. 14/100's of a second difference??
From his HF Profile
Tony Salmelainen- Talent Analysis- TIME : 14.762
In the summer of 2002, Salmelainen signed a contract with the Oilers and came to North America. His breathtaking speed made him a fan favourite, and he scored 14 goals in the regular season.
Salmelainen's most obvious skill is his speed, but he supplements it with an underrated shot.
Niklas Kronwall- Talent Analysis - TIME : 15.000
He is a great skater with good lateral movement and phenomenal speed.
He has great skating ability, hockey sense, passing skills, shot
Kyle Wellwood- Talent Analysis - TIME : 14.776
Wellwood does not have the speed necessary to avoid these hits.
His skating continues to be an area for improvement as does his strength
